October 16, 2020

ROCKVILLE, Md. – October 20, 2020 – Marketers are shifting more of their budgets and staffing to digital which is having an impact on creative, marketing and digital staffing, according to new research from Cella, a nationwide staffing, consulting and managed solutions firm. The Cella 2021 Salary Guide provides median salaries for 75 creative, marketing, digital, video and other positions, and found that remote work has not had an effort on the quality and productivity of digital teams during the pandemic.

“At Cella, our passion is to match the right people with the right roles in the right places, and we use these reports to help companies validate staffing strategies and bring in the best creative, marketing and digital rock stars,” said Conor Smith, co-CEO, Cella. “While COVID’s overall impact on the economy has been rough, the fact remains that there is still a need for quality digital talent and the proven success of remote working in 2020 will likely influence how organizations fill those positions in the future. Recruiting will be less restricted by local boundaries, and salaries will be less affected by local averages.”
